LOUISIVLLE, KY (WAVE) - A judge made it clear the man charged with shooting and killing a 15-year-old girl will not get out of jail anytime soon. Antonio McFarland is being held at Metro Corrections on a $1 million bond.
On Tuesday, Louisville Metro Police detectives arrested McFarland in connection to the shooting death of Tysha Spearman Monday night. McFarland faces one count of murder and one count of tampering with physical evidence. He appeared before a judge Wednesday morning for arraignment. McFarland pleaded not guilty.
The coroner's office said Tysha Spearman died at Kosair Children's Hospital from a gunshot to her back.
Sources told WAVE 3 a group of boys approached Spearman around 9:45 p.m. Monday in the Crop Street alley and that an argument preceded the shooting.
Police said McFarland attempted to conceal the gun that he allegedly used in the shooting, despite efforts made by police to locate it.
McFarland is scheduled to be back in court on June 22.
